Right? What could Pentangle possibly sound like?

pentangle: a british folk rock band (67-71) or as they referred to themselves, a folk jazz band.

Jacqui McShee, vocals; John Renbourn, guitar; Bert Jansch, guitar; Danny Thompson, double bass; and Terry Cox, drums.

In looking at wikipedia they have a major section labled Decline so that might not be a good sign for a band.

I recalled the name but completely forget what they sounded like. But I am sure there are some pentangle fans out there.

good name...a play on having five members

Here's a link to give you an idea of their sound http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFuxq_J1VuA&;feature=related

The original line-up had some good musicians (Danny Thompson, Bert Jansch) who were stalwarts of that scene for years. They got together again for a few anniversary shows last month. I haven't seen any reviews, but a preview referred to them as the 'British Grateful Dead' on the strength of a bit of jamming in some of their numbers.

Such very British understatement! Saying Pentangle had 'a few good musicians' is a bit like saying Bill Gates has a little bit of money in the bank. Bert Jansch in particular is right up there with the greats.

Ha Ha ! Yeah, you're right, it was a bit Ronnie Corbett. BJ is a great musician, but I saw him a couple of times and he had a bit of an attitude (more understatement), similar to Roy Harper but with less reason. Danny Thompson gets the gold stars though for all the superb work he did with others, particularly John Martyn.

I got to hear them a few times back in the day... They were always very good!
